College Hockey:
Michigan, Michigan State, Miami, Western Michigan to play at Soldier Field in 2015

According to Crain’s Chicago Business, the third-annual Hockey City Classic is slated for Soldier Field on Feb. 7, 2015.

Michigan will play Michigan State and Miami will play Western Michigan at the event.

The 2013-14 event was held at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Chicago-based sports and entertainment company Intersport is bringing the event back to the site that hosted the inaugural games in 2012-13.

“Obviously, we felt we had a very successful run in 2013,” said Intersport’s vice president of properties Drew Russell in the article. “We felt that year off from [Chicago] was important just so the event continues to be a novel concept.”

The two games will be followed by about 10 days of ice time for public skating, hockey clinics and exhibition games.

    When people stop going they will stop having it. Personally, I can’t wait for the 2016 NHL Winter Classic in Minnesota, which coupled with the college and high school games will be the biggest outdoor festival yet
